Freebie Friday #1 - Pop-up Box Cards

Hey everyone,

Like many of us, I love crafty magazines, but will only let myself buy one if there's a free gift on the cover which really appeals to me, as I reckon that even if I only make 3 or 4 cards with it, I've justified the cost of the magazine :o)

However, I've accumulated a little pile of said magazines, which I haven't even opened yet, let alone tried out the free gifts. So, to motivate myself, I've decided to make a YouTube video every Friday, featuring one of these lovely magazines and showing how I get on with the free gift.

On the top of the pile on my workdesk was the April 2018 issue of Crafts Beautiful, which included a gorgeous Pop-up Box Cards Kit, full of butterflies and flowers, very pretty and surprisingly quick to make. Here are the four cards I made in a couple of hours ...


If you would like to see how I made them, click on the link below to see my YT video ...


It's only about 15 minutes long, so grab a coffee and check it out, let me know what you think :o)

Thanks for dropping in today, see you again soon!

Love Annie xxx

Four gorgeous box cards Annie and congratulations on making a dent in your collected magazines. Well done with the video too - that takes so long.

What a brilliant idea, Annie, to make a series of videos like this! I find your voice so soothing and I enjoyed watching how it all came together. Love those little flower boxes - I can just about imagine how much fun they were to create! I look forward to your next video! xx
